Christmas will come early to one lucky raffle ticket-holder. The Arc of Fort Bend County’s “Best in the West” 36th annual fundraiser will be raffling off a replica of a classic car as part of their iconic evening. In fact, the Mercedes convertible roadster replica, is just one of many luxury items that will help raise monies for the non-profit. “We have a King Ranch Hunt that is always a favorite among the bidders,” says Co-Chairperson, Jo Ann Stevens. But she is quick to add; “Between our silent and live auctions we have something for everyone.”  Tickets are on sale now for $100 a piece and only 500 raffle tickets will be sold for your chance to win the roadster.

Make your shopping list and mark your calendar for Saturday, November 23, 2013 at 6p.m at the George Ranch arena. Your ticket will include a flavorful filled BBQ dinner provided by the Swinging Door, the get up and dance melodies of the The Triumphs and the beyond entertaining auctioneering efforts of Commissioner James Patterson and the crowd banter that comes with it!

The evening benefits the Arc of Fort Bend County, a privately funded, non-profit organization that assists individuals with intellectual and related developmental disabilities. “With State budget cuts, many of these families depend on the services and opportunities the Arc can provide,” says longtime supporter Rick Cushenberry. Educational, housing, transportation and referral services are just a few of the programs provided by the Arc of Fort Bend County.
